Archangel's Consort

...is the title of the third Guild Hunter novel! I announced it this weekend at the Australian Romance Readers Association Awards Dinner.

Here's the announcement. :D

I had a wonderful time at the dinner. If you'd like to read about it and see more photos, follow this link to my post at Oddshots.

Talking of Archangel's Consort, I turned it in on Friday. It continues Elena and Raphael's story, and you find out a lot more about them both in the book. Elena's friends from the Guild return, and a number of the Seven play strong roles - you get to discover more about a couple of them in particular. Further info to come later in the year!

Today, I'm tidying my office, as I like to have a clean desk before I start the next project. :-) And, since I'm now moving from a Guild Hunter book to a Psy/Changeling book, this is the time when the Manhattan & New York maps come off the walls, and the San Francisco & California maps go up; the story bibles get swapped; and all the timelines, as well as random notes about the GH series on my desk and on the wall get collated and put away.

This process really works for me - Type A personality anyone? *grin*

I'm having this week off, but after that, I'll be beginning work on Psy/Changeling #10 which is Hawke's book. I won't be sharing much about this book until I get well into it, but with Bonds of Justice and Play of Passion releasing soon, there shall be much Psy/Changeling goodness.

I saw a few comments on yesterday's post mentioning that we haven't seen that much of the wolves to date. Well folks, that is about to change. Play of Passion takes you into the SnowDancer den, introducing you to all of the SD lieutenants, as well as other key members of the pack you haven't yet met.

And, to close, here are some more photos from the ARRA Awards dinner!

This last shot is of a street artist I saw in Sydney while walking around with author Tracey O'Hara. Beautiful work, isn't it?

Hooray! Hawke's book. Let me do a little dance. Que Bueno! I know is quite a while for the book to get published but I am dancing of happiness.

PeppyPilotGirl said...

Lovely dress!

Can't wait for any of these!! ::does little happy impatient dance::

vi said...

Yay for Hawke's book. Your mention of his book makes waiting until 2011 more bearable...for now, at least ;)

Twimom227 said...

Thank you for the updates! Can't wait for all the goodness!

Anna said...

Oh! So much to look forward to with GH and Psy/Changlings. As far as being Type A, I think you are just very organized and dedicated to your series. The P/C series is a pretty complex world, which I love, love, love!

Also, thank you for the introduction to the new author Tracey O'Hara. Bought her book based on your endorsement and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to her next.

Enjoy your week off!

I love the title of the third GH novel. I cannot wait to read it. Please post a full excerpt for us lowly mortals.

I'm also looking foward to Hawke's story. It's been a long time coming.

Madhura said...

Nalini, you look gorgeous. That blue is such a good color on you.

Am so excited that you will start Hawke's book soon. You mentioned that we will meet more of his lieutenants which makes me squee. Hope this means that we will get more books with SD leads after Hawke's story.

Catherine said...

Hi Nalini,

I was browsing the nz herald website today, saw an article about you! Was so excited. I didn't realised you live so close. Anyway, great article. By the way, when I was studying in Dunedin, the uni bookshop always had your books :). I also saw it in this massive bookshop in Bangkok as well.

Regards,

Liz

Ami said...

I am more enthusiast hearing about HAWKE'S BOOK!!!

orannia said...

Great title Nalini! Am looking forward to the third GH book, and to the next Psy-Changeling book.

And I like clearing my desk between projects too. Gets my mind in the right place :)

And I loved the photos - it's so nice to put faces to names - so off to Oddshots to see more :)

liz said...

Love the title for the third GH book, it sounds brilliant, I also like the fact we'll get to know the wolves a lot better in the next 2 books- can't wait!!!

saiena said...

Ei! I can't wait to see more of Elena's friends - not least Ransom and his girly hair XD And the Seven, of course. I think it's 'cause we only get an GH book once a year, but I'm so greedy for that series *sigh*

I'm not allowed to get excited about Hawke's book until I've read Indigo's. No really, it's a law.

Enjoy your week!

Vorpaks said...

Awesome title!!! I am looking forward to the cover art. They'll have to go all out to beat the awesomeness of the last one.

SheaLuna said...

Ohhhh... super excited! Can't wait to read about Hawke! (Fans herself.) AND more about Elena and Raphael. (Fans herself some more.)

I totally agree with Madhura. You rock that blue dress!

rbh said...

Can`t wait for Elena/Raphael and see more of the Seven ... and for Hawke :-)
I love the books.

Christina said...

I am joining Barbarita in a happy dance! Just knowing Hawke's book will be worked on makes my day so much better!

Out of curiosity, I remember reading somewhere you had started the first chapter for Hawke's book before. Are you still going to use any of it?

Nalini Singh said...

Christina - I may use parts of it. The characters have developed over the series, so it won't work as is, but there's still a good scene there.

kylie said...

Can't contain myself: HAWKE!!!!

atapp said...

I am so excited to hear about Hawke's book! He is such a mystery and I can't wait to learn more. I hope sienna is in it!! I am also enjoying the archangel stories. I'm just loving all of your books = )
